United Colors Of Drunk Chicks

April 1st, 2010 | 6 comments | Posted by Diana

Berkeley “performance artist” Philip Huang pulled a new video stunt recently, asking people on the mean streets of Cal’s college town to decide who is more annoying: drunk Asian girls or drunk White girls.

I don’t quite know what Huang is going for, but hey, whatever. I’m glad he’s going for it. That said, is anybody else a little surprised to see that most people willing to answer the question pegged Asian chicks as the worst offenders?

I, for one, am a firm believer that all stupid, drunk chicks are intolerable–and this is an equal judgment applicable to every race, creed, and color. Y’all are horrible.

Don’t know if you’re horrible? Here are 10 Signs that you are a fucking intolerable drunk chick:

1. You can’t remember how many malibu and diet cokes you’ve consumed.
2. You’re hitting on my boyfriend.
3. Whenever anyone says the word “sake,” you say something like, “Sake to me!” and erupt into laughter.
4. You’ve spilled something wet and sweet on me, and I’m not thanking you for it.
5. I’ve been glaring at you for an hour.
6. That part of your shirt meant for boobs is currently at your neck.
7. I’ve threatened to hit you.
8. You keep “requesting” songs from the jukebox.
9. You smell like butt, old hair, vomit, and Hypnotiq.
10. I hate you. Like, really hate you.

If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out

August 30th, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions) gallery, here in Hollywood, which my friend Carrie first took me to, is one of the better art spaces in this city. And now they’ve “curated” an amazing performance art piece that elevates them to bestest.

I know what you’re thinking. Ugh. Performance art. How very (insert past decade in which you had a traumatizing experience with performance art). But this idea of LACE’s ROCKS. Li-trally.

It’s called the Karaoke Ice project, and it’s housed in an ice cream truck. This ice cream truck will be wandering the streets of Los Angeles for the next 9 days. At its scheduled stops, people will be handing out popsicles, and a makeshift stage will be created for YOU, and by that I mean you and me and Diana, on which to SING OUR LITTLE HEARTS OUT. Songs to choose from will include Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire” and the Ramones’ “I Wanna Be Sedated.”

Extreme WTF

August 13th, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

The Mainichi Daily News reported yesterday that Hitoshi Matsuzawa, an office worker from Kamagaya, Japan, successfully climbed Mount Fuji…to iron a shirt.

Yup, that’s right, there is a sport called “Extreme Ironing” which involves athletes climbing or scuba-diving to remote places and, um, IRONING. You may be shocked to learn that “those key-razy Japs” didn’t invent it, either. According to wikipedia, it was invented by the British and no one seems to agree on whether it is for reals as a sport, a total spoof, or performance art. My vote is that it’s performance art.

Click here for full story. And no, I’m not fucking with you.

Dogs Are Friends, Not Dinner

May 30th, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Yesterday, gonzo artist and animal activist Mark McGowan ate a minced-and-seasoned Corgi, (Queen Elizabeth’s dog of choice) live on the radio in protest of Her Majesty’s fox hunt. Yoko Ono happened to be on board as well, and took a bite of the naturally-deceased pup to aid the fight.

1) Eww.

2) Was Her Majesty listening?

3) Thanks, Yoko.

4) Fox hunting is certainly tired.

5) Dog eating, Mark? Take it from me, you have opened yourself up to a lifetime of highly exhausting jokes. I do not envy you.
